Ben’s Soft Pretzels Raises $30,000 for IFHF

April 26 was National Pretzel Day and Ben’s Soft Pretzels gave a pretzel to everyone who donated $1 to IFHF.

Ben’s Soft Pretzels donated 100 percent of the collected donations from April 26 to the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund.

The soft pretzel franchise also gave away a years’ worth of free pretzels to one lucky fan via a contest app on its Facebook page:

“We love celebrating National Pretzel Day every year and it makes the holiday that much more meaningful when we know we are contributing to a great cause,” said Scott Jones, chief executive officer and co-founder of Ben’s Soft Pretzels. “The participation we saw this year from customers was astonishing. Every free pretzel provided that day allowed another person to say that they supported our veterans through Intrepid Fallen Heroes [Fund] and that’s a great feeling.”

With the minimum one dollar donation, visitors received a Jumbo Soft Pretzel to celebrate National Pretzel Day and support those who have served their country. Ben’s Soft Pretzels also gave away free pretzels to those who have served in the Armed Forces on Veteran’s Day to show its support for the men and women who fearlessly defend our country.

There are currently 62 Ben’s Soft Pretzels bakery locations throughout Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, Wisconsin and Florida. Ben’s Soft Pretzels master lease and license agreement with retail giants, Wal-Mart and Meijer, allow for franchise partners to open bakeries in high-traffic areas. Looking ahead, more than 20 new Ben’s Soft Pretzels locations are in development for 2016.
